The Brackley Players have chosen Mike Leigh’s classic 1970s drama Abigail’s Party as their next production.

First performed at London’s Hampstead Theatre in 1977, Abigail’s Party, the bitingly satirical expose of ‘70s suburbia was recorded as a Play For Today for BBC TV later the same year.

Beverly and Laurence have invited their neighbours Angie and Tony round for a carefree evening of drinks and nibbles.
